Seriously, they suck! With the exception of Rowand's (http://shop.mlb.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2143825&cp=1956962.1339526&parentPage=family) distinctive face & beard, none of the 2005 World Series Bobble Heads (http://shop.mlb.com/family/index.jsp?categoryId=1339526&cp=1956962) look anything like Sox players.

It's as if MLB scrambled to reassemble them after the Sox' unexpected World Series win, and had to use pre-existing bobble heads. You could almost make a game of it.

SOX PLAYER = WHO HE REALLY LOOKS LIKE
Jon Garland (http://shop.mlb.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2143829&cp=1956962.1339526&parentPage=family) = Eric Hinske
Mark Buehrle (http://shop.mlb.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2143828&cp=1956962.1339526&parentPage=family) = Bronson Arroyo
Jermaine Dye (http://shop.mlb.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2143864&cp=1956962.1339526&parentPage=family) = Barry Bonds
Jose Contreras (http://shop.mlb.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2144513&cp=1956962.1339526&parentPage=family) = a demon (red eyes! :o: )

The Ozzie Guillen (http://shop.mlb.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2146311&cp=1956962.1339526&parentPage=family) doll... I can't even figure out who that resembles. Come on MLB, couldn't you have tried any harder?

I seriously did not know who that was until I saw Guillen at the bottom.

Looks like Jeff Goldblum to me.

I mentioned this in another thread. Ozzie's looks like Neil Cotts if he was from Venezuela.

Nothing like a good stadium give away at the park. We better have one this year after getting none last year.

Another beef: I'd look sideways and order the four horsemen...except for the fact that MLB only offers THREE horsemen!

Contreras, Buehrle, Garland... Where the **** is the Garcia bobble head?

Pathetic... this really pisses me off... :angry:

The bobbleheads that were given away at games between 2001-2004 in most cities were made by Alexander Global Productions (AGP). The bobbles being offered on mlb.com are produced by Forever Collectibles (who also made an All-Star White Sox set in 2003 too w/ Buehrle, Koch, etc.). The quality between the two different brands is pretty vast. The AGP product is just much more detailed and nicer looking, and the figures are usually made of porcelain. The Forever Collectibles seem to be made of plastic and look more generic.

This is exactly the reason I didn't purchase any. I was interested in buying the Ozzie one, until I saw a picture of it.....nice effort MLB

Looks like they used some left over Ichiro dolls and painted them over. Wack!

Any chance AGP has plans to make some too? I suppose you have to have the rights to it or something....

I'm still very irate over this mess. Why couldn't MLB have taken the trouble to produce a Garcia bobble head? I sent them an e-mail just now demanding to know why. I will post the reply. :angry:

HARRUMPH!

MLB.com responds with typical hooey, not even addressing my question... WHAT A LOAD OF BS! :angry:


Dear Valued Customer,

A product's availability is clearly noted once the item has been added to the cart as "In Stock," "Advanced Sale," "Release Date" or "Special Order." Some items are either temporarily out-of-stock (Advanced Sale items), are not available for shipment until a specific release date provided by the manufacturer (Release Date items), or require extra time for sizing or other adjustments (Special Order items, customized, etc.).

For more information, please read the details below.



Some items are offered with customization options (monogramming, etc.).

If you choose a customization option, please allow for additional time beyond the expected shipment time indicated on the Product Detail page.

The additional time required for customization varies from several days to several weeks depending on the options you choose.

We operate a real-time inventory system that updates our web store according to what is available in our inventory. If an item, size, or color is not available, we remove it from the Internet store to avoid any confusion. If you are unable to find a particular item on our online store, then the item is temporarily out of stock.

We appreciate your interest in our online store. Please periodically check back with us to see if we are carrying the product of interest.

Please register to receive e-mails if you wish to be notified about our sales and specials. See details on our homepage.

In addition, we do not have the ability to view the inventories of other retailers or our land-based stores.

In-Stock Items

Most orders for In-Stock items begin the order process as soon as your online purchase is completed. Your In-Stock item will be shipped once the item is located in stock, your payment is approved, and the receiving address is verified. You will not be charged for any item until it is shipped to you.

If you order an In-Stock item on Monday that leaves the warehouse in 1-2 full business days, it will leave the warehouse by end-of-day Wednesday.

After your order leaves our warehouse, delivery times vary according to the shipping method you select during checkout and the location of your shipping address. For example, if an item has a ship window of 1-2 full business days, and you choose the ground shipping option (3-8 business days), then your order can take up to a total of 10 business days for you to receive. Please note that business days are Monday-Friday, excluding federal holidays within the United States.

Advanced Sale Items

Advanced Sale items are items that are not yet in stock, but available for advanced purchase on our site. An Advanced Sale item you order is shipped directly to you once it is in stock. You will be notified of the status of your Advanced Sale item via e-mail. You will not be charged for any item until it is shipped to you. Expected shipment time (for example, "Advanced Sale: Buy now for shipping in 4-6 weeks") is indicated on the Product Detail page.

Please note, expected shipment times appearing on Your Shopping Cart page specify when an item is expected to leave our warehouse, not when the item will arrive at its final shipping destination. After your order leaves our warehouse, delivery times vary according to the shipping method you select during checkout and the location of your shipping address.


Release Date Items

Release Date items are items that are available for purchase on our site in advance of the manufacturer's release date for sale to the general public. Release Date items are shipped directly to you once the approved release date arrives. You will be notified of the status of your Release Date item via e-mail. You will not be charged for any item until it is shipped to you. Expected shipment time (for example, "Release Date: Buy now for shipping on 10/15/2004) is indicated on the Your Shopping Cart page.

Please note, expected shipment times appearing on the Your Shopping Cart page specify when an item is expected to leave our warehouse, not when the item will arrive at its final shipping destination. After your order leaves our warehouse, delivery times vary according to the shipping method you select during checkout and the location of your shipping address.

Special Order Items

Special Order items require some additional time before they can be shipped. Expected adjustment time (for example, "Special Order: Add 3-4 weeks for adjustment") is indicated on the Your Shopping Cart page. Your Special Order item will be shipped once your item is ready, your payment is approved, and the receiving address is verified. You will be notified of the status of your Special Order item by e-mail provided one was given at time of order.

Backordered Items

If you receive an Advance Sale Confirmation e-mail your item may be backordered. Be assured that we will ship your item as soon as possible. Unfortunately, our representatives will not have the expected ship date for these items. You will receive an email once your item is available and ready for shipment.

If this automated e-mail does not answer your question(s), please contact our Customer Service department using our toll free number. Our Customer Service is open 24 hours a day seven days a week to better serve you.

Yeah, you wasted your time. I don't think anyone actually works at the mlb.com shop. Everything is automated...you get the same crap e-mail no matter what, and if you try to call them to ask them a question, you get a recording.

Ozzie looks like Roger Clemens when he was with the Red Sox in the mid-1990's. By the way, is there a Konerko bobblehead? If it's as bad as Guillen's, don't even bother linking it
